Hi Guys,

 

i've been reading lot's about forward and reverse cables, but I do not know which one I should use.

 

My configuration is:

 

HP P420 - port 1 to drive array - all 4 drives are found

HP P420 - via 8087 to 4x sata cable, no drives are found

 

tried the onboard B120i, with the 8087 to 4x sata cable, no drives are found.

 

So i'm assuming i'm using the wrong cable. Can you guys advice me which one to use?

 

I'm using the:

LSI 0.6m SFF-8087 / SATA Kabel

Thanks,

 

Just received all parts yesterday so installing as we speak :)

Hi Schoondoggy,

 

Thanks for the help. The partnumber I have is CBL-SFF8087OCR-06M. Seems like picked the wrong one (CR instead of CF)...

 

Now i have to wait for the right one.....

Yep, you need a forward breakout cable. Too bad you have to wait for it to arrive, but look at it this way: thanks to schoondoggy's advice you know what the fix is. :)
